Singita Serengeti House is an exclusive and luxurious property located in the private 350,000-acre Singita Grumeti Game Reserve, Northern Tanzania. This stunning ‘home from home’, perched on the Sasakwa hillside, offers fabulous views across the vast plains and unsurpassable comfort in a truly wild location.
With its wide-open verandas and tasteful blend of European design and African artefacts, Singita Serengeti House provides a deluxe yet unpretentious retreat with a tennis court and a fabulous 25-metre infinity pool overlooking a salt-lick and water hole often frequented by a family of elephants. Archery is offered and there is a high-end spa and gym at the nearby Sasakwa Lodge. Somewhat unusually for a property of its calibre, the house has been specifically designed to welcome families and small groups of friends. Its commitment to supporting the local community means that staff members are from the surrounding area and much of the food served in the restaurant is locally sourced. There is relaxed ‘family-style’ dining, with platters of food served in the centre of the table and there is also an award-winning wine cellar. Attention to detail is a given and the facilities and service are outstanding.
Up to 8 guests can stay at the property. There are two elegant suites located in the main house plus two detached garden suites. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated, spacious and well-appointed, all with their own viewing veranda and en-suite bathroom. Each of the large bathrooms has a double vanity basin, a shower and a free-standing bath.
There are plenty of activities to enjoy in the locality. Private game drives in state-of-the-art landrovers offer visitors the opportunity to view up-close the great variety of wildlife found in this area including cheetah, bearded wildebeest, Bat Eared Fox, giraffe, lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and more. It is worth noting that the Migration Path varies from year to year and at times this location may not be the best in the Serengeti for game-viewing, although nothing can really detract from the enjoyment of a stay at this first-class property. Walking and horseback safaris (experienced riders only) are also offered, as are early morning Balloon Safaris. The private nature of the Grumeti reserve means that night time safaris are possible.
In the interest of safety, participation of children in game activities is at the discretion of the guide. A babysitting service is provided, along with myriad activities tailored to children's needs including arts and crafts, baking with chefs, butterfly capture (with identification and subsequent release), face painting and a fantastic mini-rangers course involving tracking animals, an astronomy safari, flower-pressing, and tuition in bush survival techniques.
Singita Serengeti house offers a private safari experience in opulent but relaxed surroundings. The price tag is high but you most certainly get what you pay for; this is one of the best safari properties in Africa and will not disappoint.
The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!

The Namibia trip was fantastic!
Self-driving was brilliant, and the chronology of the itinerary was perfect (against the flow/direction most other travelers took).
As for specifics:
This place was the best!
Best service, best staff, best food, best experiences, best facilities.
We saw a cheetah kill, leopards, and white rhino (which we were not expecting).
If you’ve never been you should go...If I ever go back to Namibia I will revisit.
The only (slight) disappointment.
Maybe because it was right after Okonjima, but the service was lacking, the facilities were a bit run down, it was the only place with mosquitoes in the room with no net and no spray. Food was marginal. Not sure if there are better options in the area, though.
Etosha Park was amazing. There was so much wildlife with so little crowds.
The Okaukeujo Camp had the best watering hole with animals coming in at all times of the night. A great experience exclusive to the camp.
Beautiful place. Very private. Food and service excellent.
A nice stopping point on the drive.
An amazing place...How they laid out and built it.
Enjoyed exploring the grounds and the local area/sights.
The staff was on par with Okonjima.
2 days were perfect.
Ivin provided us with good advice/information/recommendations along the route, along with a cell phone and cooler for the trip. The car was perfect.
They represent Tourdust well!
Again, another great trip you put together...Thank you!

We both suffered but enjoyed it immensely. Just how it should be!!!!
Our route up the mountain, the Burguret trail is very arduous and certainly should not be used for people who are not very fit and experienced trekkers. It mainly followers animal trails through the forests and bog lands around the mountain. The Chogoria route down was great. The guide and porters were great. Wild camping means just that, really just what I wanted, but I have lived in Kenya.
